Aggressive Yorkie

Any Yorkie owner knows that these dogs are great personalities. It’s an interesting fact that they can have weight of less than 6 pounds but at the same time they may be stubborn and really brave. You can frequently see how Yorkies become aggressive to other dogs or even humans. You shouldn’t think that they are innocent as such behavior can lead to different fights and bites. Though they are considered to be small dogs, they can hurt small children.

Besides, this aggressive behavior can lead to different wounds if they start being aggressive to stronger dogs. That is why any owner needs to take certain measures on calming his or her Yorkie. First of all, you need to prevent your Yorkie from developing a feeling of the boss in the house. By setting certain rules, your Yorkie will not feel so free. Some boundaries can be presented in the form of prohibition of your Yorkie on any furniture.

Or, you cannot let your Yorkie stay in the kitchen when you are cooking or eating. Any attempt to stop developing dominance aggression in your Yorkie will be beneficial for you in future. Also you need to develop obedience skills in your Yorkie, but every time of being obedient should be rewarded. If you cannot cope with your dog, you need to involve your Yorkie in training of following the commands. You also need to pay attention to the situations that make your Yorkie develop fear. Aggression based on fear is the most frequent type of aggression.

You need to recreate the situation and to reward your Yorkie once it remains calm.

At the same time, you need to define real causes of aggression in your Yorkie. This aggression can sometimes be associated with certain health problems. That is why you need to visit a vet with your Yorkie to make sure that health problems do not play a great role.
